Hansa 2.3 Wide

Hansa Sailing 2_3 Flyer.pdf


The Hansa 2.3 wide is as the Hansa 2.3 single but with seating for two people combined weight under 100kg + 20kg luggage.

It is an ideal choice for sailability groups that plan to have children teaching or taking other children just for the ride. The wide seat gives seating for two small people. The simplicity of having just one sail makes it very safe, allowing the sailor to be trained in each element of control and in the basics of racing strategies and tactics.

In an ideal club arrangement the sailor would then move into the 2.3 single for their first solo sailing and racing, which is a massive confidence builder.
The use of the more experienced child sailors as trainers to other children is a great way of building character and esteem.
If adults are to be the trainers (combined weight over 100kg + 20kg luggage) then the 303 wide would be a better choice.

Hansa 2.3 Hard Seats

The hard seat is an optional extra and comes in two sizes. It is designed to give more side support and to help prevent the sailor slipping down into the consol area. The seat is instantly removable by drawing 1 pin and untying two lashing cords.

There is a small hard "side seat" that can be fitted with the hammock seat still fitted which allows a child or small person to be in the hard seat and an adult or another child to accompany them

Note: Fitting a large or small hard seat will make the 2.3 wide a single seater.
